Dear Butch, Carol, Linda & Mary Jo,

I was saddened to learn of Gary's passing this morning. He had a connection with Dad with I & M besides the connection with Betty & Eldean. How I miss my parents and memories with your family. Sending prayers for Gary's wife and kids. Also prayers to you, the siblings. I called my brother, Dale, to let him know. He is retired but I am still working at St. Michaels, 31 plus years. Cindy also still works.

Lots of love,

Jan Komanec Blomeke

To the Yarger Family,
I can't begin to express my heart felt sorry for the loss of Gary. I have so many memories from the past 30 plus years of knowing all of you. Gary and Mary were there at the loss of my husband and gave me strength and support when I needed it. The bon fires are a fond memory as are the park parties, the candy, beets and Mary's cookies Gary brought to us. Our long conversations where we agreed on everything. I wished I could be there. My heart goes out to all of you at this time. You are in my prayers.
With love and warm memories, DJ
